Crossing Boundaries: Rethinking the Humanities across Disciplines

Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 9:37pm
Department of English and American Studies, Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski"

Saturday, November 26, 2022

Continually being transformed, the humanities have expanded into a discursive field of trends, movements, and methodologies that have appropriated the thoughts, ideas, and viewpoints from social and other sciences by transgressing and crossing traditional boundaries, limitations, and demarcations. The humanities which traditionally include the study of disciplines such as language, literature, arts, history, culture, and philosophy rarely prove to be “disciplined” as each one often tends to encroach upon prescribed and reserved territories of other disciplines not traditionally humanities labeled.

NeMLA 2023: Panel on Re-hierarchising Adaptation

updated: 
Friday, September 9, 2022 - 6:59pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Adaptation studies has contended with the question of hierarchies since it first emerged. Adaptation as a process similarly so: the problem of the source and the ‘original’ has established certain values and positions of texts. This has been challenged most notably through the debate in the field around fidelity, wherein the question of being ‘true’ to the source has been variously deemed fallacious, unhelpful, or both. Despite some recent proponents for it, what emerges from this is the challenging of the hierarchies that the fidelity debate espouses. Broadly, this has been main way in which these hierarchies have been challenged in adaptations, primarily due to the seemingly inescapable status fidelity has in the field.

Fireside Tales of Terror: The Gothic and Winter

Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 10:30pm

Monday, October 17, 2022

“Horrors belong as naturally to the fireside, as fireside belongs to Christmas” declares the narrator of the piece “Fireside Horrors for Christmas” in the December 1847 issue of Dublin University Magazine. This image of “popular fireside stories or winter’s tales” exchanged in communal settings had, as the late Catherine Belsey explained, a “long vernacular tradition” (2010). Furthermore, it was, she argues, a practice that often-challenged orthodox institutional discourse about, for example, the “true meaning” of Christmas or the origins of ghosts and tapped into secular and “pagan” rituals and practices.

Radical Sondheim (Online Symposium)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 10:29pm
Kingston University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 29, 2023

In the wake of his death in 2021, tributes emphasised how Sondheim’s creations were not only a postmodern challenge to the hummable tunes of traditional musical theatre and conventional simplicities of staging and plot, but also to expected ideas of the musical theatre protagonist. Writing in The Atlantic, Sophie Gilbert expressed the audience’s love for Sondheim as a response to how his work ‘takes the typically unseen… and forces them into the spotlight’.

Location: Niagara Falls Convention Center
Hotel: Sheraton Niagara Falls

The study of violence works on constituting different angles through which violent actions take place, while also focusing on the difference in the morality of actions that are thus committed. Since everybody accepts facts in an interpretational setup, the realities of ground zero are ignored. The act of attaining knowledge, as Michel Foucault says, requires digging. Rather than interpretation there needs to be an understanding of the difference between the representative point of view and representation.

Crises and Turns: Continuities and Discontinuities in American Culture (Extended deadline)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 2:36am
Nordic Association for American Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

While it appears to be perennially tempting to see one’s own time as exceptional and unprecedented, it is nevertheless safe to say that our present time is perceived by many as characterized by crises of different kinds (democratic, humanitarian, environmental) to an unusually high degree. As a result, the stakes are high when it comes to identifying causes and cures and the political, media and academic communities are all concerned in their different ways with constructing narratives that make sense of what is happening: Backlash, renewal, apocalypse?

As more climate doomsday predictions continue to surface from scientists, journalists, and scholars, the fight to combat global climate collapse can sometimes feel hopeless—petrified by the saturation of negative affects in literary, theoretical, and cultural production. While continuing with neoliberal business-as-usual is untenable, scholars have begun to recognize that doom and gloom predictions alone actually make individuals less likely to act.

Manuscripts and Premodern Performance: Reassessing the Evidence

Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society

Leeds International Medieval Congress

July 3-6, 2023

 

The relationship between manuscript and performance in medieval drama has long been a subject of debate. Do extant premodern play texts bear witness to actual or idealized performances? What function did early drama manuscripts serve? What role should drama manuscripts play in determining our understanding of the world of medieval performance?
